The new year is bringing with it new concerns about the homeless problem in Dallas. As city leaders head back to work Tuesday, homelessness will be one of the hot topics of conversation.

Last year, 31% of the homeless in Collin County were children, and 37 of the 112 kids were between 5 and 10 years old.
